Vote/Ballot Update

On our ballot there will also be a nonbinding vote for Congress to overturn the Citizen's United decision (I updated yesterday's post to include this, too), which basically states that corporations have the same rights as individual human beings in politics.

The text of that question will read:
Shall the state senator from this district be instructed to vote in favor of a resolution calling upon Congress to propose an amendment to the U.S. constitution affirming that (1) corporations are not entitled to the constitutional rights of human beings, and (2) both Congress and the states may place limits on political contributions and political spending?
For a commentary on this, see this MassLive article.
